Their bank accounts are looking crazy!
It’s so easy to throw shade at Jay Z and Beyoncé. While many have lauded the couple for their invincibility and musical prowess, like any other couple, they have had their fair share of issues. With lies and infidelity being the root of their issues, the two have diligently worked together in hopes of keeping their ship afloat. Rather than sink into a dark hole of oblivion, they have paddled onto the land of riches — literally. According to FORBES, Jay & Bey are on top again…
Jay Z and Beyonce are the highest-paid celebrity couple in 2016.
Earlier this week, FORBES announced their Celebrity 100 List, which ranks the richest celebrities of the year. Once again, the Carters crushed the competition and ranked at the very top in terms of being the richest celebrity couple in the game. Jay and Bey racked up a whopping total of $107.5 million in 2016. Whoa!
The breadwinner was Beyoncé.
On the Top 100, Beyonce came in at #34 by earning a ridiculous $54 million. Her year has been action-packed. She released his sixth album in the form of Lemonade and also launched her Formation World Tour, which crushed ticket sales. “I’ve never met anyone that works harder than me in my industry,” Beyoncé told the publication.
As for Jay Z…
He wasn’t a slouch himself. Hov fell behind his wife by a whisker, entering the list at #36. He was able to make $53.5 million for the year. Even though he hasn’t been musically active, Hov has made millions through a plethora of endeavors. For one, Armand de Brignac Champagne and D’Ussé Cognac have proven to be great moneymakers for him. In addition, Hov’s prize possession in Roc Nation Sports, continues to thrive. By having marquee assets in the form of Kevin Durant and Robinson Cano, Hov’s sports agency remains formidable in this rough climate.
